Collaboration with industry partners

The institutes and centres of the School of Engineering engage in research and development projects together with industrial and business partners. You will directly benefit from this. This is because the results of the research are continually incorporated into the teaching. In the project work and Bachelor thesis, you will work on your own topics in close collaboration with industrial companies and service providers.
